Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Zell am See to Viehofen.

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
We are heading to Zell for a week in January and was wandering is there a lift from Viehofen back up to Zell or do we have to take the bus back.
Any info appreciated.

From @tatmantours (basically, yes the lift will be complete and reached from piste 68 on the Saalbach side.):

It’s probably worth adding that a new link to Zell am See is opening in December, which will offer another interesting itinerary option, and also increase the amount of skiing available on the Ski Circus lift pass to 408km. The only thing that restricts the Ski Circus from marketing itself as by far the biggest, fully-interlinked ski area in Austria (rather than the second biggest after the Arlberg) is that, whilst it will be possible to ski from Saalbach to Zell am See without resorting to public transport, the return journey will involve a 5 minute free ski bus journey from a point where you ski down to the valley bottom between Viehhofen and Vorderglemm and the Schoenleitenbahn gondola, which takes you back up into the Saalbach ski area (from the top it’s a straightforward 6km downhill all the way ski back to Saalbach).
Incidentally this minor irritation of needing to catch the ski bus (which runs every 20 minutes - and might become even more regular with the opening of the new link) to get back to Saalbach will be eradicated when a new gondola is constructed from the village of Viehhofen up to Schoenleiten on the Saalbach side of the Glemm valley. This is scheduled to happen in the next few years, subject to ongoing geological tests to establish the suitability of the terrain for a new reservoir to feed snow cannons on the run from Saalbach area down to Viehhofen.

The new gondola is actually running at present (I drove past it yesterday), but it won't be officially open until December. Apart from that 5 minute ski bus journey on returning to Saalbach, the two areas (Zell and Saalbach) will be essentially one big, 408km, lift-linked area.
